Everyone has a Story

It's True! Everyone has a story -- to tell --. It's also been said this; Almost everyone has a book within them. I'm not sure about that one, but...

Taking a page out of the Facebook play-book, audience-generated content is the new wave. The Nouveau cuisine --Soup de jour. Amazingly, audiences (views, site-visitors, etc) Love to strut their stuff. Ordinary persons with a secret penchant for literary expose'; having an unbridled passion to write, are submitting articles to numerous publications.

The very rise of Blogging, has produced a new cottage niche industry of it's own. What about me? Well, that speaks for itself. Because here I am, producing content --the Good, Bad, and Ugly. Not even sure if anyone is reading this dribble much less giving a hoot.

What's Your Story? 

Certainly, every human on the planet has experienced a Life event that merits a specialness all of its own. Were you a Soldier? Have you birthed a Child? Shot a Hole-in-One on the golf range. Experienced a Gunshot or stabbing? Been imprisoned? Taken a vow of celibacy? No...Ok, have you ever stayed up for more than 24 hours without sleep.

These references are the seeds of greatness. The fodder of pulitzer proportions. The fruits of fabulousness. The infinitesimal ingredients of pure substance.

Whatever you are, have done, been there, or painfully experienced, YOU have a Story! Yet, you won't speak won't print it. Why? Because You Are a Chicken! Scared out of your blanky-blank. I get it; been there and felt that myself.

Your only hope is to step out of your comfort zone. Research surveys report that the biggest fear among career professionals is that of public speaking. At least writing, shields one from being petrified by standing solo in front of an audience. But still...
